Battle on for Italian

Swansea are set to battle it out with Newcastle for the services Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini, reports have claimed.

The Swans are said to have failed with a £14.1million bid to sign the player in January, although club officials have always insisted their interest never went further than an enquiry.

Swansea went on to sign Alberto Paloschi from Chievo instead but could renew their interest in the summer and may face competition from the Magpies if they stay in the Premier League.

Gabbiadini’s form has slumped since the January transfer window closed and he has gone seven games without a goal, form which may deter both clubs from taking their interest any further.
